HAWC’s Parent Child Trauma Recovery Program combines trauma treatment, safety planning, and advocacy for children and their parents who have experienced domestic violence. This model was created and evaluated by HAWC and its community partner, MassGeneral for Children at North Shore Medical Center and shown to significantly reduce Post Traumatic Stress Disorder in both young children and their protective caregivers. The Program was selected for the Futures Without Violence, “Promising Futures: Best Practices for children, youth, and parents experiencing domestic violence.”

The Parent Child Trauma Recovery Program also offers:

  • Support and referral information for the non offending  parent and children
  • Training and consultation for professionals working with families impacted by violence
  • Safety planning for all family members
